Bills' White calls Gronk a 'dirty player' for blindside hit

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo Bills rookie cornerback Tre'Davious White shook nervously in anger at his locker Thursday while accusing Patriots Rob Gronkowski of being a dirty player for blindsiding him in the back of the head.

As for the NFL issuing Gronkowski a one-game suspension for the hit last Sunday, White turned away from the television cameras and muttered: "It's a joke, dog." White then turned back toward the cameras and said he didn't know what to say before noting that Gronkowski could have broken his neck.

White made his first comments since being hit by Gronkowski with 4:50 left in Buffalo's 23-3 loss to the Patriots. White lay near the New England sideline after intercepting a Tom Brady pass. Gronkowski led with his forearm and struck White in the back of the helmet. Gronkowski was penalized for unnecessary roughness following the play, and then issued a one-game suspension by the NFL a day later.
